FMX Report: X-Fighters Ireland

Under thick clouds and occasional rain showers, the best freestyle motocrossers in the world duked it out today in Ireland for the honor of becoming the first-ever winner of the Slane Castle Red Bull X-Fighters event. And while the finals had to be cancelled due to the dismal Irish weather, one thing was clear; Travis Pastrana was the man to beat in Slane.

Pastrana rode away to an easy victory in the semi-finals with a perfect score of 100 after throwing nearly every one of his flip tricks in pouring rain, and due to the showers and subsequent cancellation, the score stood to give TP the win. Swiss ride Mat Rebeaud finished second, while Mexico City’s X-Fighters winner Dani Torres rounded out the top-three.
